Map. Data. Yum.

Brilliantly simple quantifiable research idea. Renee DiResta decided to find out what people think about each state in the US, so she typed “Why is [state name] so” into a Google Search and let auto-correct complete the phrase for each state. She logged a tally of the frequencies, and then put the data on a map. Nicely done.

I don’t like this expression ‘First World problems.’ It is false and it is condescending. Yes, Nigerians struggle with floods or infant mortality. But these same Nigerians also deal with mundane and seemingly luxurious hassles. Connectivity issues on your BlackBerry, cost of car repair, how to sync your iPad, what brand of noodles to buy: Third World problems. All the silly stuff of life doesn’t disappear just because you’re black and live in a poorer country. People in the richer nations need a more robust sense of the lives being lived in the darker nations. Here’s a First World problem: the inability to see that others are as fully complex and as keen on technology and pleasure as you are.
